8 Essential Tips for Choosing the Perfect Tattoo
Choosing a new tattoo can be an important and permanent decision. It's important to choose something that is meaningful to you and that makes you feel happy to display for the rest of your life. Here are 8 useful tips to help you choose your next tattoo:
1. Be yourself.
Think of a moment or thing that identifies you as a person, such as moments that marked your life, special people/animals, movies, music, heroes, athletes, life philosophies, among others...
2. Size and Location
Think about which part of your body you want to tattoo and what size you would like your new tattoo to be. If you want something small, think of simple elements, as the more detail and information the tattoo has, the larger it will have to be.
3. Don't follow trends.
Tattoos are permanent and trends are passing, so don't follow trends or fads.
4. Don't rush.
After choosing your idea, don't rush to get your tattoo without seeing the rest of the tips.
